About us

Woodworker magazine

Keith’s love of woodwork started at school with a truly inspirational teacher who instilled in him an appreciation of craftsmanship and design. He trained as an electronics engineer and worked for fifteen years in a (then) secret communications centre in the heart of Manchester, before returning to his first love of woodwork. With a move to Shropshire in 1999 he was able to set up his own workshop, and in 2004 he started writing for The Woodworker magazine. Since then he has contributed numerous technical and construction articles, together with tool and machinery reviews. He has written a regular “Ask Keith” section and answered over 250 readers queries. He now writes a monthly workshop diary for the magazine called Shopnotes. As well  as writing for The Woodworker Keith has also had articles published in Practical Woodworking and Good Woodworking magazines.
